I stayed at this RIU in May this year for a weekend getaway. I have come to love RIU hotels and was expecting it to be as upbeat and vibrant as the one in Ochio Rios, the property is clean and has well manicured gardens. Food was great and they had so many varieties to choose from, i especially liked... More

My stay at Riu Montego Bay was from July 21-July 29. The check in process was very easy and our room was available at 11am which was awesome because check in time is 3pm. Our room was in building 4 and it is a long walk from the lobby with bags in the heat and smells like rotten eggs. Every... More

Visited this hotel in July to watch the Michael Jackson show which was very good considering there was no air conditioning. Ordered two Vodka and tonic both were very weak and given soda not tonic. But I believe most people where happy staying here with a nice pool and beach.

Ok, I literally just left this hotel 5hrs ago, so I'm making this review now when I can remember everything. The hotel/resort is literally 7-8 mins from the airport which sounds like a good thing, not so good with a plane flying over you every 10mins. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help with anything. The walk... More

Awesome hotel, not sure why there are so many negative comments. There was something for everyone there: entertainment, spa, beach, games, food and drinks. We mainly booked this hotel because of the package deal with US Air. Check-in & room it’s only a 10 minute cab ride from the airport to the resort, $20. Check-in was really fast and a... More

Staff wonderful! Food awesome. Drinks on point. I enjoyed my stay & would definitely do it again. Our hotel building didn't have an elevator, & was about 3/4 miles away from on site festivities. (a tough 2am walk back to our rooms lol).......

We chose the Riu Montego Bay for our anniversary trip this year. Overall we were disappointed with our experience. First, as I previously stated we were there for our anniversary. I called ahead & told the hotel that we were visiting for our anniversary. I also reminded them when we checked in. The clerk at the front desk welcomed us... More

By reading some of the reviews on here, I initially had doubts over booking, but looking at the pictures, we went with our gut instinct and booked regardless, hoping that the reviews were not 100% true, and what a relief we did not listen and we did book! What an amazing holiday. Greeted upon arrival by friendly staff and a... More

I honestly don't know where to start. This place was a terrible resort. A large group traveled there for a family wedding last week and the experience was awful. The wedding planner screwed over the bride and groom scamming them into having a buffet reception on the beach which was very nice only due to family and friends celebrating the... More
